Hi I'm Nikita Jo

I grew up in San Diego. I went to Ukraine to teach little kids English. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 22 working two jobs and preparing to serve a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love watching movies, reading books, and singing/dancing my heart out!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints also known as Mormons because I know that it is the full restored gospel that was given to the Jews by Christ hundreds of years ago. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and was given to us to help us know how to prepare to one day live with our Heavenly Father and his son our brother Jesus Christ again. I am a member because when I attend church I am filled with peace and love and a greater understanding of who I am. The church helps me to understand why I am here and where I am going to go when I die. I am a member because it fills me with so much joy to know that when I die it is not the end and that I can live with my family not just til death but for eternity! I am so very grateful to my savior for the sacrifices he made for me so that I can feel the sweet joy of repentance and forgiveness. I am so grateful to a loving Heavenly Father who has given me a living prophet today to help me know how to return to him again. He knew that this life would not be easy but because he loves me he has given me a prophet to guide me, scriptures to help strengthen me, a family and many friends who love and support me, and a savior who literally bled from every pore for my sins and than died for me. I know my Heavenly Father loves me and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to love everyone as Jesus does. I attend church weekly and read my scriptures( Bible, Book of Mormon, and Doctrine and Covenants) daily. I try to live in a way that represents Christ and the kind of person he was. I love serving others whether they are members of my church or not. I am part of the compassionate service in my ward which is a group of girls who try and always find ways to reach out to the people in the ward who need them most whether because there sick,new, going through hard times or just need a friend. Mostly I live by. Faith by caring for others around me, being the best friend and person I can be, and showing my Heavenly Father that I love him by keeping his commandments.
